Portions were plenty (and not overly so) and dishes and ingredients were well balanced. Service was attentive and friendly, but we never felt crowded or rushed. Sit by the sunny windows, if possible!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been to Cantina FelizI've been to Cantina Feliz for occasions ranging from Girls Night Out to Mother's Day to best friend's lunch. On each occasion, the food is superb and the service great! I love this Mexican gem!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThey actually read my request!It was our 28th Anniversary. I requested, via Open Table, a nice table with a view. We did get a nice table with a view. Was it coincidence? No! At the end of our meal Aimee congratulated us on our event!! Thanks Aimee & Cantina Feliz!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place rocked!Drinks were well made and the food was excellent! Highly recommend! Well done Cantina Feliz--we will be back!
The only issue we had was the noise level--it was a bit loud. The food, service and drinks totally made up for the acoustics.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful FoodThis place is worth going way out of your way for--excellent food, and not "tex-mex." Side dishes and apps are especially unusual and delicious, but everything was great.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding experience. ...oneOutstanding experience. ...one of the best meals I've had in a while.....worth every penny!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent, serviceFood was excellent, service was very good.

A fun place to dine and celebrate!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have dined here severalWe have dined here several times before and will be back, for sure. Surprised how busy they were on a Thursday evening. Clearly, we are not the only people to have "discovered" this place- simple, excellent entrees and bright cheerful decor and service. My personal favorite is the appetizer "ceviche verde".4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service, food andExcellent service, food and setting. Held a birthday dinner for a friend there, the wait was a matter of seconds, and our food was out within ten minutes, on a busy Saturday night to boot.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFun place with an interestingFun place with an interesting and well executed menu. Terrific guacamole and margaritas!
Can become very loud which is fine with a group looking for an energetic atmosphere but hard to talk at the smaller tables...probably quieter on the porch.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMceviche was very good-ceviche was very good- I like the grilled fish tacos- would have liked more sides with them to add to the flavor of the fish. Guacamole was very good with the chips4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMTop of the heapBy far , the best Mexican food. Fresh & not swimming in sauce or cheese.
Shrimp crevece is fabulous. Tacos are also terrific4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe will be returning...!Not a BYOB! $25 corking fee.
VERY creative Mexican cuisine!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMCantina Feliz had excellentCantina Feliz had excellent food, interesting drinks, and very good service! I woudl definitely visit there again.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot! Food is very goodGreat spot! Food is very good and the lunch menu special is the obvious choice. My co-workers liked it so much they had a happy hour scheduled for later in the week within an hour of returning to the office.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMUpscale MexicanVery good Mexican that's more than tacos and enchiladas. Upscale entrees which are just shy of Mexican fusion. The restaurant is very popular, locally, and leans more toward the fine dining side than the Taco Bell side of dining and prices.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSalty & Noisy W/ Excellent ServiceThis is the second time I have been to Cantina Feliz. Both times, I found the food to be very salty and woke up at around 2 AM, parched. The atmosphere was so loud that you could barely talk to your dining partners. That said, it's good for kids and even has a kids' menu. Getting the negative out of the way, I really liked the food! The shrimp ceviche was delicious, the sopa azteca wonderful, and the elotes loco was just the best. My husband had the blood orange ceviche and that portion was tiny. The domingo sundae was amazing. I do love the food here and would come back, I just wouldn't expect to be able to hold a conversation with my dining partner(s). Great cocktails, too. The waitstaff was just perfect and attentive.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing entress, average salsaI was excited about the Best of Philly voted restaurant, and Cantina lived up to the expectations in almost every way. Of my group of 3, our entress were fabulous (shout out to the mushroom tacos and quinoa enchiladas, incredible!) as was their special appetizer (some sort of carmelized onion flatbread). We also enjoyed 2 delicious desserts: the sundae and the flourless chocolate cake. If you're only choosing one the sundae wins hands down, and it is one of my all time favorite desserts. They also have a unique and tasty selection of cocktails. The reason Cantina only got 4 stars on food is because their salsa was bland and their guacamole was average... these are two key dishes for a Mexican restaurant in my book. Loved it overall though!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMy son and I were greetedMy son and I were greeted promptly by the lovely hostess and taken to our seats. We ordered a bunch of different items off the menu. We wanted to be adventurous and try some new foods. Everything was delicious. We especially enjoyed the pork carnitas and the corn (so much that we ordered more). My only criticism was that the portions on everything seemed pretty small for the price. The tacos were tiny! But all in all it was a great meal.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is uniformly wellThe food is uniformly well prepared, well presented and delicious. Even the chips brought to the table are special - thin, crisp and warm, and servied with a wonderfully complex sauce rather than the ubiquitous salsa. Service is friendly and efficient without being invasive. The vibrant Mexican decor enhances a most pleasant dining experience.
During Happy Hour the bar is packed and noisy but most of the dining areas are separated enough to minimize this potential problem.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMPassover Tasting MenuThe Tasting Menu for Passover was a hit. We enjoyed the different twist to the traditional meal.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicioso!We have been here several times and it is always delicious. I especially recommend the octopus app and the korean short rib tacos. The ceviche, while delicious, is disappointingly skimpy. If you want to go simple - the nachos and enchiladas are awesome. The rest of the menu is superb and often times inventive! Catering here is also great...they did a baby shower for my wife.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second time atThis was my second time at Cantina Feliz. I was worried that it wouldn't be as good as the first time. I was wrong! The food is very consistent and delicious. Our waiter was so helpful and fun. There is something for everyone. I was with a vegetarian and an adventurous eater. We all got something that we loved.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMCantina Feliz never disappoints.Cantina Feliz never disappoints.
